, that was the proudest moment for me as an elected official. [cheers] >> we brought republicans and democrats together to speak on that amendment. we only had 7.5 minutes. that is the debate time they gave us, seven and a half minutes to talk about one of the most important issues facing our country and the world. we split it up between 11 or 12 people. on both sides of the aisle. i have to tell you that afterwards, after we had that debate, people were saying congratulations, they were proud of what we had done even though we had not had the vote yet. when the vote came down, it was close, it scared people. it scared the establishment in both parties. we have the president of the united states fighting against the amendment. it was the first time in his administration that he came out in opposition to an amendment. we have the intelligence community and leadership against it. despite those obstacles, we came very close to passing the amendment. and we are going to keep fighting and pass something to rein in the nsa. but let me tell you, the nsa is fighting back, the establishment is fighting back. wh
